Grandma's reaching with her gigantic talons for that poor kid as it comes through the door like she wants to devour it out of pure spite after having to cook a gigantic meal for that thankless family...

Not only did Grandma have to cook an enormous meal, she now has to take care of a newborn. And she's supposed to be happy about it. "Everything looks great, Grandma!" says the well-groomed mom as she hands an astonishingly large infant over to her. The tag line is "A home isn't a home without Hellman's." Or for Grandma it could be, "Be glad your home isn't the nursing home."

but not that far of a cry from a lot of current day commercial

Granny looks like she stepped in from "Little House of the Prairie" to help her daughter and son-in-law, I presume, celebrate the birth of their (obviously at least 6 months old) newborn baby wearing a bonnet big enough to cook a turkey in- which means a Thanksgiving-like buffet; which, according to this commercial, means vast quantities of MAYONNAISE. It looks like you could cut that turkey open and it would ooze mayonnaise. MMmmmm, Grandma! Where did she get those glasses from, Charles Ingalls? Seriously. If this were a black family would granny look like Aunt Jemima? Ludicrous= hilarity!

I don't understand the negative reviews of this ad. It's sugar-sweet and very warm'n'fuzzy.

Who is this woman?
New parents bring home a new baby. Great Grandma (according to the truly annoying jingle) prepares all the food for the welcome celebrations. At the end, .new Mom says, ÃÂ¡ÃÂ°Thanks Grandma!ÃÂ¡ÃÂ± OH1 ok, so that would make her HER grandma, and the baby the GREAT Grandmother. So much for my snarky comment.

There's 'good' cholesterol, and there's 'better' cholesterol.
This 30 second spot for Hellman's Mayonnaise begs the question: Did Grandmother forget to baste the turkey? Forgetting to do that would render the bird 'dry' and unmanageable. The only viable solution? Make sandwichs! Let's not forget to slather on lots of mayo to help make the turkey moist and greasy! Hey, no holiday table is complete without a jar of hearty mayonnaise!

Treacly commercial for Hellman's Mayonnaise (aka Best Foods west of the Rockies) from c. 1980. As with some many food commercials of the period, and especially those that come out around Thanksgiving, the emphasis is how Product X can help bring about unity at family gatherings and maintain traditions. How mayonnaise in particular can do that is unclear. I suppose you're suppose to glob into grandma's terrible cooking, or something.
